Music video by The Church performing Reptile. (C)1988 Arista Records, Inc.

"Reptile" peaked at number 27 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks in 1988..The song was well received by critics upon its release.. Ned Raggett of Allmusic compared it to "the sheer punch of Heyday's most frenetic moments with a slightly more restrained but still strong, smart performance." The chorus was "rushing", the guitars were "Epic" and "melancholic", and the atmosphere was set by "a sudden mid-song slow dive bomb break, guitars howling down into the void."..Starfish is the 5th studioLP by Australian alternative rock band The Church, released in February 1988...

The bandwidth of white noise is limited in practice by the mechanism of noise generation, by the transmission medium and by finite observation capabilities. A random signal is considered "white noise" if it is observed to have a flat spectrum over a medium's widest possible bandwidth...
